Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. Detroit-based watchmaker Shinola has just released their first titanium timepiece dubbed The Black Blizzard. Inspired by the Dust Bowl of the 1930s and the homesteaders who weathered the storm, The Black Blizzard wristwatch is an emblem of the American spirit—a willingness and determination to overcome adversity. Featuring the turnable topping bezel that Shinola has been using on most of their new watches (and subsequently makes me like them even more) the watch comes with both a titanium bracelet and rubber sport strap as well as a collector’s book about the Dust Bowl. Shinola’s most complicated timepiece to date, with each new watch seems to come an even higher price point. This, unfortunately, remains one of the only reasons I haven’t purchasing one yet. Damn if these watches aren’t sharp looking, though. The Black Blizzard is available in both 42 and 48mm.
